A quiet nice hostel with all facilities. The outside door may take you some time to open if you come late in the nigth. The pub is always empty, so don't expect much about it. I would recomend this placê for my friends.

Thank you for choosing destinations Hostels during your trip to London, the outside door opens first time if you enter the correct code, it sometimes sticks and needs a little extra push to open, the pub downstairs in not full every night but there is always a few people in the bar area either playing pool or just watching tv while drinking, thank you for your comments.

Good idea the lockers under the beds, but it should be improved: anyone with a screwdriver can open them! But in general it is a very good place! I choose it on my arrival to the UK and choose it again for the departure!

Lovely place in a very good location (very central, only 10 min. walking to London Bridge and 20 min. to Tower Bridge), the staff was nice and breakfast (included in the price) was nicer than what you'd normally expect! The rooms and bathrooms were nice and clean but could be bigger, not that much space to leave your stuff in the room (there were some lockers under the beds but not very comfortable to use). But all in all, for a weekend trip it was a pleasant stay.

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels during your trip to London, we are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us, our rooms while not the biggest are big enough for the number of people in them and their luggage, also you can store any other luggage in our secure luggage room should you desire, the lockers are intended for medium to small luggage and personal items, thank you for your comments.

Rather small room (typical for London...), but windows can be opened - result: far less stuffy than some others. Quiet nights, since the hostel is not directly on the main street. Breakfast buffet has quite a selection. Everything clean. Computer in the room worked - very useful addition, that. Location ideal, Underground station is REALLY only 5min away, even with luggage. Only complaint: 2 loos, 2 showers and only 2 WASHBASINS for a whole floor?! Prepare for queues....! Warning: no elevator!

Thank you for choosing Destinations Hostels during your trip to London, we are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us, while we do not have any elevators it is exactly 18 steps on our staircase, hardly going to tire someone out, our shower/toilet facilities are more than adequate for the 20 beds we have in our hostel, thank you for your comments.

My favourite hostel to stay at in London. I lived outside of London for 8 months and spent most weekends in the city and have stayed at most hostels in London. But the Rose and Crown is my FAVOURITE! Fantastic location, amazing breakfast, friendly and helpful staff, and the beds are dreamy. It can be a little bit nosier at night as it is a more central location, but I always found I slept better with a bit of noise. The bathrooms are the only area I would suggest improving, but overall good

Great, clean, close. Highly recommended - don't be put off by the fact that it's a pub, its quiet in the rooms n not a party hostel. Had one small problem with mixed up beds on checkin but worked out fine in the end. Stay here.

Good London accommodation. Shared bathrooms and enough of them so that we were never waiting. Rooms were large, beds comfy and clean.

Had a great stay at the Rose & Crown. Wish I had more time to stay in London. The pub was great. Room was very comfortable. Staff and the dog, Mishka, were also awesome.

Rose and Crown is so close to the most popular attractions and the London Bridge underground station, which can get you a connection to anywhere you want to go in the city! HostelWorld states that you can check in until midnight, but it really closes at 11:30. We got there right at midnight, and the owner woke up to get us checked in and settled. He was very nice and gracious at all times. The beds were so comfortable & have their own charging station & curtain. Would definitely stay again!

Due to the central location it was quite noisy ad didn't sleep well at all. However, this was a very good hostel overall and would stay there again. Bit more expensive than other hostels but I think it was worth paying the extra

I really liked the atmosphere in the hostel, the staff was very welcoming and helped in every way they could. The dorm room was also quite nice, beds clean, bathrooms also well kept. I also liked the pub downstairs to the hostel, you can easily meet new people there.

Stay here! First of all the hostel is so cute. It was clean, safe, and fun. The location is seriously amazing! It's a quick walk to Borough Market and the London Bridge underground Station. I can't rate this hostel any higher. It's not a "party" hostel. It's laid back and easy-going. A
